Small-Town Store with Big-City Style

At the top of cobblestoned Main Street, Murray's Toggery has presided as a Nantucket fixture for over half a century. Orignally the home of the Nantucket Reds, over the decades Murray's has continued to grow both in size and service. Today Murray's carries men's, women's, and children’s clothing, including an exclusive line of traditional sportswear featuring the Murray's Toggery label.

Murray's has been entirely family-run since the 1950's. Today John and Trish, siblings in the Murray family, manage the buying and daily operation of the business. It's a small-town store with big-city style and a devoted local, national, and international clientele.

Unique among Nantucket shops is that Murray's is open year-round! This makes it popular with both off-island visitors and island residents alike. You will find Murray's Toggery perfect not only for shopping, but for that age-old Nantucket tradition, "having a gam." Most customers linger a while to chat and also to browse the wide assortment of brands, many of which are hard to find and quitissential to Nantucket.

Nantucket Chronicle's previous two What's In Store articles featured Sara Campbell and J. McLaughlin, both brands who now have stores of their own in Nantucket but who both got their first start on Nantucket being sold in Murray's Toggery Shop!

Nantucket Reds are originally inspired by cotton trousers worn in Brittany. A characteristic of Reds is that they fade to a "dusty rose" as they age. The distinctive salmon pink color has since been used on hats, shirts, sweaters and socks.

Reds are worn predominantly by summer residents of Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, and Cape Cod in place of khakis or chinos.

Tommy Hilfiger even wore them at his runway show last September.

Nantucket Reds are traditionally pants, but today the Reds collection consists of an entire selection of clothing and accessories.

Bags, belts, wallets and more to compliment all the terrific clothing sold at Murray's Toggery Shop.
